    More from Heathrow a a couple from Birmingham

    After a few circuits at Heathrow to check out the airport the weather started closing in for VFR. On the third take-off I headed for Birmingham. A line of build-up's just northwest of London had me trying to 'thread the needle' through them. I was at a nice altitude (5000') and speed (215KIAS) so I really didn't want to alter this with only a short hop.

    Not really too bumpy and no shear between the buildups. Upon descending below the deck for Birmingham, thing got a little bumpy for awhile but not too bad.

    Very hazy at Birmingham.
